Gala Dinner: Robbers’ Banquet, Wednesday, 1 July
The Forest of Rold, being the largest forest area in Denmark, sets the perfect frame for a night of networking, competing and dining in an informal and relaxed setting at the Robbers’ Camp.
The atmosphere of the past is recreated when resurrecting the Robbers from Rold in order to make a thrilling and unique event with a touch of local Danish history.
For centuries, this area was known as a dubious place for ordinary people to be. In the dark, the Rold Robbers would make their move and attack people who, for one reason or the other, had to pass through the forest, it being the only way to get from North to South at that time being. Nowadays, however, it is all fun and games.
Coaches will take the participants on a short 30-minute drive to the entrance of Rebild National Park. Here robbers dressed in authentic costumes will greet the participants and walk them through the forest simulating along the way a friendly attack.
Arriving at the Robbers’ Camp, an exquisite dinner is awaiting under the magnificent treetops. In the course of the evening, robber stories, competitions and entertainment will keep the participants intrigued and make the evening unforgettable! In this informal and relaxed atmosphere, the participants will have the perfect opportunity to experience local folklore and gain a unique and memorable experience.
The dress code of the evening is warm, informal/outdoor/casual and flat shoes are highly recommended!
